Auburn loses linemen

AUBURN – Auburn coach Gene Chizik confirmed Wednesday that offensive linemen Aubrey Phillips, and Ed Christian have likely suffered career-ending injuries and that defensive end Justin Delaine is out for the season with an injury.
Christian and Phillips will remain on scholarship but will not count against Auburn’s 85 scholarship limit.
“Him (Aubrey) and Ed have had medical issues, so that (medical hardship) is our anticipation,” Chizik said.
Delaine is eligible to return next season as a sophomore.
“That’s the plan right now,” Chizik said.
Specifics of the injuries were not released.
